Toxic Family Members


“Negative family members are more often than not jerks and it is important to keep this in mind when you are trying to handle a situation.

They will try to bully you, pick on you for any reason they can find, and also belittle you for those reasons. You do not have to stand around for this person while they insult you.

You can try to combat this negative behavior by killing them with kindness, being polite, and never giving into their selfish actions. You are a much better person than they are just by avoiding harsh words and playing their petty little games. “

Getting along with the people in our lives – especially the ones we’re really close to – can at times be a nightmarish road filled with potholes, bumps, and red flags.

Conversations  with therapists and healers have taught me that you don’t have to suffer from those toxic people in your world who make you feel small or stupid, who are judgmental, or who are unaccepting of who you are.

Unpleasant, negative drama is often brought about by the toxic people in our lives, and sadly, the toxic person is often a family member. You owe it to yourself to separate from relationships that are bringing you down in one way or another.

Try not to interpret toxic affronts as personal attacks.  These assaults usually come from unhealed issues within the person that you may have triggered in some way.  

Consider letting go of and forgiving those toxic people in your world, especially if they are family members. It is best to detach with love and simply not include the negative person in your world anymore.

You can still wish the person well, but you have the right, indeed the responsibility to keep the toxic drama out of your life, because toxic drama can inhibit your own soul growth.
